Accent EPK - From Virtual to Reality

During the 2020, COVID-19 quarantine, Sara Niemietz teamed up with the acapella group Accent to produce Public Service Announcement style music-videos with an upbeat message.

Accent Vocal is a sextet formed in 2011.[1] Because of their diverse locations, the formation of Accent was internet inspired and enabled. The group worked remotely until they were invited to perform at the Umeå2014, A Choral Midsummer Light's Dream festival in 2014.[2][3] The group styles itself and follows in the tradition of groups like Take 6 and The Hi-Lo's.[4]

Sara Niemietz is an independent songwriter and vocal stylist; she is a cast member of Postmodern Jukebox, and has recorded with Richard Marx and B. J. Thomas. At the time of this writing, Niemietz' latest album is Get Right (2019).
